I'm trying to upload video for a cultural group blog to youtube so we can link it (as it costs to embed on the blog) and the member that took the video (some kind of smart phone - don't know what kind) loaded it onto dropbox and sent me the links as she couldn't load to youtube and I tried and continually get error messages.


Looks like from what I can find it has something to do with the format - but I don't know what the format is or how to convert (for free).


Can anyone give me easy to understand instructions and if I need special (free) software a safe place to download it from (I won't use CNET as have gotton very very nasty malware downloading from there)?


Thank you.

I'll look around and try to find you one. Right now the only problem is I can't include links to a commercial website. In the mean time can you download the file to your pc? If your right click the video and select properties, on the general tab there should be information including the type of file. Knowing the type of file will help me to write more detailed instructions once I find a suitable program to convert it.
